The Vianney Griffins got a pair of goals in the first 12 minutes by Will Dehnner Tuesday to take the lead against the DeSmet Spartans as they opened play in the CBC tournament. The Spartans got one back in the 19th when Henry Lawlor took advantage of some miscommunication in the back, finishing from 10 yards. An own goal in the 27th minute, following a scrum at the near post following a corner kick, made it 2-2 going into the second half.

The game winner came in the 46th minute on Brendan Schoemehl’s 25 yard direct kick, awarded after Lawlor was taken down while moving from left to right across the top of the box. Schoemehl’s ball found the far side netting and led to the celebration seen above.
